Possible that the shutter or the focus mechanism is faulty and will need to be opened. Only if you are competent must you attempt to remove the camera as the mechansim and circuit will be delicate which needs experience. Ohter wise the best option is to ask a reliable technician to assist in opening and checking for a locked mechanism. Possible that some link had come loose or some foreign dirt has clogged. Hope you try. Good day
Please try Power Resetting the Camera. To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera. Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera. Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.
A family member of mine had that exact same camera and it did the exact same thing (though, he left his in the snow all night). The way he got around it, was to turn it on, and then hold on to the lens to prevent it from closing back into the camera. This trick always worked for him, but if you do it, it may mess up more things with the camera. If it's a risk you are willing to take, go for it!
Hey Aunt CC, What is most likely happening is there is something obstructing the movement of the lens (like a piece of sand), and that is why it keeps powering down immediately when you turn the camera on. Another cause of this camera powering down immediately could be the battery cover or memory card cover is open. If those covers are not open I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
I am having the same problem with an A10 that I have. I can turn it on by holding down the viewscreen button and view the images that are in memory, but if I just turn it on the lens never opens and the camera immediately turns itself off.
Just wondered if you'd had any responses that helped you diagnose the problem. If you could email me at [email protected] with any info I'd appreciate it.
I have the same problem. Its actually because the On/Off button got pushed in somehow and its stuck. At this time right now, im not sure how to make it unstuck, but sometimes it will stay on. But when you push on, since its being held down, its stuck that way and immediately turns off because its still being held down constantly. Maybe try using a thing needle to try and push it out?
